Day 236: At this time of year this area is probably buried under 5 meters of snow, but in the summer the trail up to Hidden Lake highlights the ruggedness of the mountains here. The trail is about 8 miles round trip as you climb 3300 ft up to an old fire lookout at almost 7,000 ft above sea level. The lookout, perched on the top of a spire of shale and other rocks gives a panoramic view from the Coast Mountains of British Columbia down to the central Washington cascades. The lookout is now available for first come first serve camping and you can sleep in this old cabin as the Northern Washington wind whips around you. #washington #hiking #nothcascades #pacificnw #isolated #rugged #dayhike #hiddenlake #firelookout #summer #photooftheday #photoaday
"I didn't find fulfillment at the summit. I found it every step of the way, because when you're following the path that's right for you, the journey itself becomes the reward." A good friend sent me an article yesterday with this quote in it and I connect with it so much. This is such a good translation for goals in the outdoors, but also life in general.
Throwback to a week ago when I was greeted with this lovely sight after emerging from the forested hillside below. #nothcascades #sunset #iwanttogoback
Backyard hike with a view con mi amigo Ro.
Moonrise above Picket Range. Seen from summit of Ruth Mountain. #nothcascades
More pictures of the snow cave up at Horseshoe Basin. Love the way the snow looks from beneath. #cascadepasstrail #cascadepass #horseshoebasin #boyscoutsofamerica #snowcave #hiking #camping #bsa #backpacking #nothcascades #northwestisbest #gooutside
Here's the history of the Black Warrior Mine at the top of Horseshoe Basin. Over 165 years old. #BlackWarriorMine #cascadepasstrail #cascadepass #horseshoebasin #boyscoutsofamerica #hiking #camping #bsa #backpacking #nothcascades #northwestisbest #gooutside
Black Warrior Mine at the top of Horseshoe Basin on the Cascade Pass Trail. We explored to the very end of all the tunnels. Soooo much fun. #BlackWarriorMine #cascadepasstrail #cascadepass #horseshoebasin #boyscoutsofamerica #hiking #camping #bsa #backpacking #nothcascades #northwestisbest #gooutside
At 7200 ft there is snow everywhere. Didn't want to hike across the snow fields in the basin. So we went under them! #cascadepasstrail #cascadepass #horseshoebasin #boyscoutsofamerica #snowcave #hiking #camping #bsa #backpacking #nothcascades #northwestisbest #gooutside
Almost done with this scout excursion. Can't wait to be home. More pictures to come. #cascadepasstrail #cascadepass #boyscoutsofamerica #hiking #camping #bsa #backpacking #nothcascades #northwestisbest #gooutside #21legion #legion

Pictures of WA/MT mountain adventures are making me jealous! Instead of hiking I'm just sitting on my couch living vicariously through you. Enjoy the Rockies and Cascades for me! 🏕 . . #pnwonderland #yellowasterbutte #nothcascades #nwisthebest #westcoastbestcoast #getoutside

Out here nothing else matters.
Getting out for some early skiing behind the Early Winter Spires. @matthewrothlisberger moves uphill through the larches as we make our way toward blue col.
The early season uphill grind payed off with a couple of nice turns. It's the most wonderful time of year!
I was waking through icy streams, that took my breath away, moving slowly through westward water, over glacial plains, and I walked off you, and I walked off an old me. . . . . . . 🐿🍁🗺 #wanderlust #explore #getoutstayout #getoutside #fallhikes #washington #nwadventurephoto #nw #pnwonderland #pnwcollective #pnw #upperleftus #upperleftusa #nothcascades #fallcolors #nationalpark #nationalparkservice
